Introducing Say Zoop!—the Latest Interactive Book from Hervé Tullet

Long known as the “Prince of Preschool” in his native home of France, Hervé Tullet has made his mark in America with 2011’s Press Here.

The groundbreaking bestseller invited young readers to press, shake, tap, and blow on the dots, which appear to respond by magic with each turn of the page. The now-classic book has become a household favorite, even inspiring birthday parties and Halloween costumes.

Herve Tullet: Press Here, Mix It Up, and Let's Play

His delightful follow-ups Mix it Up! and Let’s Play! continued the fun with innovative interaction and storytelling. Tullet’s books define the genre of participatory bookmaking, encouraging readers to explore and interact with a physical book in all its dimensions.

And now that brings us to Say Zoop!

Say Zoop! by Herve Tullet

This new picture book combines the interactive magic of his beloved bestsellers with silly sounds and a thoughtful approach to understanding language. By encouraging readers to make some noise—the book responds with bursts of color and moving shapes without the aid of batteries—children are empowered to use their active imaginations and direct each page’s reaction.

The reward is tremendous: a journey of whimsy and sheer fun that extends well beyond the book’s pages.
